Every Wine needs proper bunches selected to the right maturation.

For Montefalco Rosso Riserva we select manually the 5% of grapes coming from our vineyards.

Fermentation is made under controlled temperature, preceded by pre fermentation cold maceration through the best third millennium technologies respecting tradition. After the first racking, wine starts settling in stainless steel vats. Afterwards, it starts malolactic fermentation in cask before entering in barrel and in a long ageing in bottle.

The colour is an intense ruby red.

The aroma is evolved: bramble and wild berries jelly, cherries, bottled black cherries and dried wild cherries. There is a complex spicy note due to Sagrantino and to the ageing in big cask. In this wine you can also find a firm toasting and a scent of tobacco and vanilla.

Acidity is brilliant, tannin is well integrated and smooth; softness and pseudo-caloric sensation, give a pleasant harmony to this wine.

It matches perfectly with red meat, game, cold cuts and aged cheese.
